Our Dealership Network
We are building a network of hundreds of dealerships across California. We strive to only work with dealers that have proven to treat consumers fairly; we do not work with predatory dealerships.
Grant participants must go to an approved dealership.
We can still accept new dealerships while the Reservation List is at full capacity. If you’re a dealership looking to join the CVA Program network, please read on!
For Dealerships: How Grants Work
CVA Program participants are eligible for a grant at the point of sale, so the participant should already be approved for a grant when they come to shop at your dealership. You can help the participant redeem their grant by following these 5 easy steps.
1. Verify the Approval Letter
Each approved applicant will bring a Clean Vehicle Assistance Program Approval Letter for you to verify and additional helpful documents and checklists. Please check the expiration date on the approval letter to ensure it has not expired.
2. Verify the Vehicle
This Vehicle Requirements Checklist outlines important vehicle stipulations.
- – Battery Electric Vehicle, Plug-in Hybrid, or Hybrid Vehicle
- – 75,000 miles or less
- – 8 years old or newer (add the current year and manufactured year)
- – Clean title
- – No open recalls
3. Add the Deferred Down Payment
Write in the approved grant amount into the vehicle purchase contract as a deferred down payment.
4. Email Us the Purchase Contract & Grant Confirmation
Email the purchase contract, the signed grant confirmation form, the vehicle history report, and the mechanic’s inspection to firstname.lastname@example.org.
5. Receive the Grant Via Electronic Funds Transfer (ACH)
We will send the grant payment to your dealership via ACH once we have verified a qualified clean vehicle purchase has been completed by an approved applicant. ACH processing takes up to 10 business days once we have received all required documentation from your dealership.
